How To Manage Rapid Metabolism Of Vyanase?
the only other ADHD med I tried was adderall and hated it. what can I do about my vyvanse only lasting 5 1/2 hrs a day.
I think drug holiday at weekend will better option
Thanks for using health care magic.
I read your query and understand your concerns.
From the available description it appears to me that the drug holiday every weekend will be a better option in compare to trying a different medication for ADD.
I also feel that you are rapid metabolizer of vyvanse which is shortening the effect of vyvanse approximately 6 hours or less. This could be due to some other medication, if any, or due to genetic factors which are beyond our control.
In case this is genetic factors your doctor may increase the dose otherwise it will be difficult for him/her as you are already on maximum approved dose of Vyvanse.
I hope this helps you.
Yes it can be one of the option but not best
Thanks for follow up.
The equivalent dose of dexdrin will be around 15 mg to 20 mg to have equal effect as 70 mg of vyvanse.
I completely agree that it is one of the common experience to have loss of efficacy after few hours of vyvanse but most patients can be helped with little intervention (by knowing why it happens) rather than increasing the dose.
It is also true that dexdrin is another excellent option but in my opinion explaining your situation to your doctor without fear of any repercussions will be better option as vyvanse can be prescribed more if there are compelling reasons to do so.
Having said this effect of dexdrin lasts about 10 hours a.
I hope this clarifies further.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
